“Treble Clef” High Polish Finish
Sterling Silver Pendant
This is a handmade High Polish “Music Clef” Sterling Silver Pendant. It amazes me with each new design that I do what can be created from a simple piece of wire and some basic tools.
The artist breathes life into a boring wire. It starts it’s incredible journey from wire to become this Sterling Silver Pendant.
This is a keepsake to be handed down. The story starts with the artist but continues on its own unique journey with you the customer. It is a very cool feeling to be part of that.Each piece is unique to itself the 1st time and the fifth time you make it. That is because there is no machine making it and no matter how hard I try its impossible to create 2 exactly alike. That is the beauty of handmade.
Starts with Argentium Sterling Silver which is the most tarnish resistant silver in the world. It is the new Silver that helps keep your maintenance low. Argentium sets new purity standards for silver. Argentium is always purer than traditional sterling silver. I take 8″ of wire and form the large spiral curl flatten the wire with a hammer. Then head north to make the top loop hammer than down. The wire then travel behind the front of the pendant where I trim it off do a small curl on the end and tap that with a hammer. I then use a torch and fuse the wire on the back side. Before I can start the finishing process it goes through a heat treatment of 1 1/2 hours in the oven at 500 degrees. This activates the special property in the Argentium to make it tarnish resistance. and at the same time it hardens the sterling silver making it much harder than regular sterling silver.
Why buy from me?
Quality and your Satisfaction is my goal!
Finishing the Sterling Silver Pendant is just as important as creating he piece. This is where some artist get in a hurry. They have spent all their time creating and now they want to start on the next project. I have learn this it what sets my work apart from others there is no shortcuts. I do not get in a hurry at the end. I want to make sure the buyer has a smooth snag free keepsake jewelry. I use a buffing machine and I go through a 6 step of using different finishing brushes. Once I am satisfied with the finish I then let it tumble for 12 hours to help work hard and burnish the shine further.
Comes with a rubber cord.
